Back in 2012, right after "Silver Linings Playbook" but before the funny wig free-for-all of "American Hustle," Bradley Cooper and Jennifer Lawrence teamed for "Serena," a historical drama from Oscar-winning Danish filmmaker Susanne Bier. And then... nothing. Late last year it was reported that the movie was nearing completion and being shopped to potential buyers (the delay was blamed on a painfully exacting editorial process that lasted more than 18 months) but there's still no domestic release date lined up (yet). There is, however, a trailer released ahead of the London Film Festival (happening in November), so at least we now know what the movie is all about (via Vulture).

The movie is a sweeping period romance and stars Cooper as a logging baron, with Lawrence playing his new wife. Back when Angelina Jolie and Darren Aronofsky were attached to the project, it seemed more focused on her "descent into madness," because Aronofsky loves movies where people descend into madness. There still seems to be that component (especially in the second half of the trailer) but it looks much more focused on the relationship between Cooper and Lawrence and their efforts to log a particularly difficult mountain, which makes it something that we can all relate to. Considering the success Cooper and Lawrence have had together, it doesn't make a lot of sense why this thing is still in limbo.

Quite frankly, we wish we were watching it right now. But since we aren't attending the London Film Festival (that we know of), a big question mark still hovers around Lawrence, Cooper, and their old timey accents.
